After several years of emailing, and corresponding, I finally got to meet Lisa Genova, author of Still Alice and Left Neglected. If you have been reading this blog for long, you know how I have raved about her books. Still Alice deals with Alzheimer's disease and that is how I first became aware of Lisa. Her second book which just came out deals with a neurological condition called Left Neglect. It is a very interesting disorder and almost hard to believe. But, her book certainly describes it well. Lisa was at a Book Festival in Savannah Georgia and I took the opportunity to go hear her speak. She was gracious enough to give me some of her free time while she was there and I so appreciate it. I'm glad we finally got to meet in person after being "cyber friends" for so long. Hope all went well with the rest of the festival Lisa and thanks again for sharing your time with me!

Still Alice was engrossing--I couldn't put it down.
